Love That Heals

CB Devo Apr 1“When Jesus saw her (Martha) weeping, and the Jews who had come along with her also weeping, He was deeply moved in spirit and troubled. ‘Where have you laid him?’ He asked. ‘Come and see, Lord,’ they replied. Jesus wept.”John 11:33-35 (NIV).

Jesus encountered every type of people on earth: people who loved Him, people who hated Him, people who only came for deliverance and healing, people who wanted to learn from Him, etc. Among Jesus’ friends were three siblings: Martha, Mary, and Lazarus (John 11:5).  When Lazarus fell sick, his sisters panicked and wanted the Lord to come quickly. While Jesus loved these friends, He didn’t rush to Lazarus’ side.  Only after He finished what He was doing for the kingdom did He go to Lazarus. Why?  Because Jesus was following God’s plan for Lazarus’ life, his sisters’ lives, and the lives of the people who became aware that Lazarus had breathed his last breath four days prior to Jesus’ arrival.

 

When Jesus finally arrived, He asked to see Lazarus’ body and wept. He reminded the people that if they believed they would see the glory of God. Then Jesus prayed, “Father, thank You for hearing me.” He then called out to Lazarus in a loud voice and told him to come out; Lazarus lived again.

 

Sisters, this Jesus is the same Jesus that we serve! He is with us as He was with Martha, Mary, and Lazarus. Believe in Him. Trust Him. Whatever wound we are battling, we can place it at His feet and allow Him to take off our burdens and heal us.

 

“Lord, thank You for being a loving and caring God. You see us and You know everything about us. Please help us to trust that no matter what we face, or what circumstances we endure, that You will command us to come out in faith and remove the weight of the rags we wear.”

 

For His Glory
